Picking up where I left off last October with my piece of puffery, promoting the talents of Tactical Thinking's meisterboys Modern Medicine: It's that Tech-Hop, came to make you break a sweat. And since then the secret seven-track CD I'm storing and sitting on remains unreleased. And sent to me by Bobby Esmond in secret single-time digital download is Modern Medicine's naughty little head-knocking rework of Blur's Girls & Boys. I'm lead to understand that the various incarnations of Modern Medicine, Tactical Thinking and Surreal Knowledge have been sitting on and incubating this hard-boiled beat'n'egg for some time.

There is video evidence because, as we all know, no testimony is sufficient to establish roof raising, unless the testimony be of such a kind, that its falsehood would be more roof raising, than the fact, which it endeavours to establish.
